This new school year Howard Payne University welcomed its largest freshman class since the seventies. This fall had three hundred and forty new incoming freshman and fifty transfer students. That is about a fourteen percent increase from last fall. And over the past year the freshman incoming class has increased by sixty-three percent. Admissions thinks that it's the small size and close knit atmosphere that attracts students. The University also offers two scholarship just for students who live in Texas. They hope that this growth continues but they don't want to get too big. HPU takes pride on its family feel on campus.
